Zucchini and Eggs

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
I added sweet Vidalia onion slices to the zucchini saute and seasoned with oregano. Delicious! The ratio I used was one medium zucchini, 1/2 medium onion, and 2 eggs.

Simple Feta Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
Couldn't be easier to "throw" this together for a nice quick salad. I read the reviews though and saw that many felt it was bland as written...I used Garlic and Herb feta cheese and that provided enough seasoning for me.

Honeyed Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
This is in the oven right now; based on the good aroma I'd say that this is going to taste like a "5". I plan to serve it tomorrow over brown rice. Update: I doubled the sauce ingredients and left the stew uncovered for about 20 mins - that was enough to thicken it to a very nice stew-y consistency. Definitely a keeper recipe for stew that's a little different than the usual.

Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
I tasted this while cooking and thought it needed at least a little extra seasoning...I added freshly ground black pepper and some dried crumbled sage. Skipped a step to make this even easier and just drained the grease off the sausage, leaving about 1 tblsp in the skillet. Then sprinkled a good heaping tblsp of flour over the meat and combined well, cooking for a minute or so. Then added the milk (didn't measure, just kept adding until the thickness was right.) Served this over thick slices of buttered french bread that I toasted under the broiler.

Frank's Famous Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
I bought some jars of prepared pasta sauce on sale, so used one for this recipe plus the can of tomato paste - no extra stewed tomatoes or tomato sauce. When I make any kind of pasta sauce, I like to rinse the cans/jars with some red wine and add to the simmering sauce. Usually don't agree with recipes that say "you can't tell it's turkey" but this one was very close in taste to spaghetti sauce made with ground beef, especially after it simmered longer than the 15 minutes the recipe instructs...

Bratwurst Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Fresh green beans were a nice addition to this stew - and I used navy beans instead of great northern. Probably did add more seasoning (not different, just more). I added additional water as I thought the veggies needed more liquid to cook in; then I was afraid the stew would be to liquid-y, but after simmering for at least 20 minutes if not more it was a just-right consistency. It was really good served with cornbread.

Pierogi Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
I took a short cut and used mini farfalle instead of lasagna noodles. Used sour cream instead of milk to mash the potatoes, and seasoned them generously with salt, freshly ground pepper, and snipped chives. I omitted the bacon and used a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella cheeses. I've never tasted Pierogis before, but if they are as good as this casserole, they must be deelicious!

Spinach Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
I guess you could say I made a more "rustic" version by using fresh spinach that was very roughly chopped. I sauteed the onion, mushrooms and spinach before adding to the flour mixture. Used about 3/4 package of fresh spinach and 2 eggs to halve the recipe; all other measurements as specified for 6 servings. Baked it in a round cake pan - reserved some of the cheese and sprinkled it on the top during the last few minutes of baking. Spinach pie without the crust!

Rosy Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
The combination of paprika and sour cream (as many reviewers suggested) is what made this soup stand out for me. Since no chicken broth was used, I added about a tsp of chicken granules to the milk Also added hot pepper sauce and ground black pepper. As with most soups, the flavors were richer and even better when reheated.

Byrdhouse Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
Was looking for a fresh tasting "sauce" to use on top of my spinach/ham manicotti. I found this recipe and was not disappointed. Did add a small amount of garlic powder along with the basil, though.

Crispy Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
Mine were more "sticks" than "wedges"...and they tasted great! I'm sure that using just garlic powder, s&p would yield tasty results, too but I did add paprika and adobo seasoning for some extra tastiness.

Baked Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
From the other reviews, it was obvious that the flavor of this pudding was good, but it was very dry. I used a lot more milk - and also used a bit more sugar - so wrote the proportions as a customized recipe. I think even with the extra liquid I added, it still could have been baked probably 15 minutes less.

Kielbasa and Kidney Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
I was SURE that I had made this before but couldn't find my review...turns out the same exact recipe with the same title is duplicated on AR! I think this is a wonderful meal served with fried potatoes...I substituted red beans for the kidney beans with the same great results.

Migas II

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
Loved the taste of the fried corn tortillas with the egg! The great thing about this recipe is you can add as much or as little extra flavor as you want..I was making this as a light supper so added tomato and cilantro.

Bum's Lunch

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
A very fun idea but from reading the other reviews I concluded that it HAD to have more seasoning - I liberally sprinkled the meat with garlic powder and mesquite seasoning. I spread butter on the steak as directed, but also put a few more dots on top of the onion/potato layer before folding up the packet. I thought it still could use more seasoning, so I ate it with BBQ sauce. I would make this again for my own lunch, but not for company (unless it was part of a cook-out).

Ramen Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
I really enjoyed this, but made some changes/additions because I thought the recipe as written might not have enough flavor. Instead of the sunflower seeds, I used mandarin orange. I used an equal ratio of oil, sugar, and cider vinegar plus I added about 1/2 tsp of the Oriental Seasoning from the ramen noodle packet. Next time I make this recipe, I'll add green onion. Oh..almost forgot to add that slightly toasting the crushed ramen noodles in butter was good, too.

Pan Fried Tilapia Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
I didn't make the mayo sauce, and I didn't eat it as a sandwich, but I did season the tilapia fillets with Old Bay and garlic and pan fried them in butter. I poured the butter from the skillet over the fish when I served it. It didn't need any extra sauce as far as I was concerned...delicious as is.
